Got ya stuff? Let’s do it!
How To Make Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip
If you did not already gather that you need your crockpot, go get that!
Combine the cream cheese, blue cheese dressing, buffalo wing sauce, chicken breast and shredded cheddar in a small crockpot and stir it all together.
Now that the heavy lifting is done, cover the crockpot and cook on LOW for 2-3 hours, until it’s all hot and bubbly.
A quick note to make it even faster
If you’re in a hurry, you can heat the ingredients in a saucepan stovetop and then transfer it to your crockpot to let it simmer for less time.
Y’all that is it! You can take it out and top it with a little extra cheese if you’d like and let that melt on top, and then serve with your favorite chips, veggies, or whatever you like. ←- did you read that in my digital underground voice that time? Because you should have.
Now to answer a couple of questions.
Do you have to use canned chicken?
Nope. But that is part of what makes it super quick and easy. You can make, or even buy a rotisserie chicken and shred that. And use it in place of the canned chicken. It will taste just as good. Trust me, I know!
Do I have to use blue cheese?
If you are not a fan of the blue cheese dressing, you can leave it out altogether. Or you can substitute it with ranch dressing. I am not a fan of blue cheese but I do like the flavor it adds here. But go with what is good to you.
What is the best hot sauce to use for this?
Like I said above, go with your favorite. If you are like me and don’t really do hot sauce like that, so you don’t have a favorite. Here are some of the most popular brands, in no particular order.
- Red Hot
- Lousiana Hot Sauce
- Sweet Baby Ray’s
That’s it folks. Five ingredients. Two hours that you can spend doing something else. And some of the best chicken dip you eva had.
